Best foundation for pale almost see thru people?

Really struggle to find anything that evens out complexion and isn't orange. Also would like something which is easy to apply (usually one handed whilst entertaining DC).
Any hints, tips or recommendations? Budget not an issue just what something that works.
Have tried BB cream (orange), currently on Maxfactor but disappears midday.

DD2 who has very pale skin Casper wears Rimmel True Match (Blue lid) in the palest shade - I think it might be Ivory. It lasts very well on her.

The red haired young lady, from Girls Aloud, is it Nichola ?
She has a range of make up for very pale skin, it's called "Dainty Doll" I believe.

The Body shop sell lightening foundation drops, I don't really need to use them but I've heard good things!

Nars Siberia

Similar problem here. Max Factor Facefinity is the best I've found tbh. "Porcelain" in the winter and "Ivory" when I've had enough sun to progress to a shade above pale blue.

It lasts ok usually. Sometimes have to re-apply but it's so quick to touch-up I don't really mind.

Illamasqua and Charlotte Tilbury both great for pale skin

I use Bobbi Brown foundation stick in Porcelain. The colour is very natural but I can't say the coverage is great. I still mourn the demise of Prescriptives, they had amazing foundations for pale skin.

Lancôme teint idole 24hrs 008 (this is the palest, don't be fooled by the 005)

Interesting! I tried the 005 and it was way too dark. Will nab a sample of 008.

Armani have a new foundation out that looks promising. Power Fabric I believe it's called.

squoosh - the 008 is a new colour they've added, not sure why they added it there and not below the 005! It's paler and cool toned

Thanks all. Will gather some samples. Perfect foundation here I come!
